Yes a very big unless. Multi-core processors are already available

Not necessarily. BGP convergence is strongly dependent on memory
bandwidth and multiple cores do not increase that.
Sun just released the T2 chip, claimed 60GB/s memory bandwidth, on-
board 10GbE interface etc.
Pricing under $1000 for an 8-core chip with 64 "threads".
